Image distortion I am having trouble when I download pictures onto my computer. The images look fine on LCD but once downloaded have either distorted color (streaks of green or other colors) or they have lines running through which make the images not aligned correctly. Each time I download pictures from the camera a greater quantity of pictures seem to be distorted and corrupted.

Pink tinge When I shoot a picture in bright sunlight, the picture always has a pink tinge to it.

I am new at doing this and I would like any help you can give. Thank you. All of the pictures have a very distorted color. They all have a pinkish-violet color. They look awful.

White balance I have an ongoing problem with all my images having a stronge red / yellow color cast to them. It does not matter if I'm in the daylight or shooting under flouresent lights.

Purple image was visible in viewfinder and in picture, came on at rare random in 2 months ago. The picture became more frequent, and picture had vertical distortion as well. Pictures unusable.

Image quality My camera is not working. Whenever I turn it on and attempt to take a picture, there is a discolored, distorted image. The colors all seem to be in a pinkish, redish pastel, with a running, watery look. The batteries are fully charged. If I take the picture, the "prints" displayed when I plug it in, look the same way.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110. When I take pictures, they often look yellow. I can get the color to correct by focusing on a nearby area, but when I return to the shot I want to take, the color almost always goes back to a yellowish cast. I bought this camera because I was having the same problem with my last Nikon. I thought it was the camera. Now I'm thinking the problem is with the manufacturer.
